Having problems with your Acer Aspire One PC Notebook ?

I have an Acer Aspire One. I'm trying to play video files using Windows Media Player and only hear audio. There is no video (with the exception of the patterns that you see when only audio is playing). Please help. George [email protected] 312-218-4200

Answers :


all you need to do to get the video to work is to install FFDSHOW CODEC.

download the file
extract the contents
run the program file / setup file / ffdshow..
install the program next next next next next next done, you don't need to adjust any settings.

ones ffdshow is installed it will work on the background when you play a video file.

all video files should work and show picture now.
